Cellar Door presents the Giesen story
The Giesen brothers’ story is founded on good food, fine wines and warm hospitality. Theo Giesen has a saying that resonates around the team at Giesen Wines; ‘Generous people make generous wines’.
That saying is never truer than the visitor experience at Giesen’s Cellar Door where the platters are bountiful and the wine generous. Taking pride of place on Rapaura Road—Marlborough’s Golden Mile—Giesen’s Cellar Door provides the spiritual home for people to visit and enjoy all that is good about Giesen.
Surrounded by neighbouring wineries, Giesen’s Cellar Door is a Mediterranean style building replete with a wonderful courtyard that invites visitors to relax and enjoy Giesen’s delicious wines with a platter that has become world famous in Marlborough.
In the cooler months a roaring fireplace provides the perfect spot to warm the body and soul while enjoying good food and wine with family and friends. “Our platters are predominantly locally sourced from the Nelson/Marlborough region with a story about where that food has been produced from as well,” says Kyle Skene, Giesen’ Wines General Manager.
Sitting next to Giesen’s Cellar Door, an acre of organic syrah vineyard offers visitors the opportunity of seeing a working vineyard, bringing them closer to the wine experience.
Giesen’s Cellar Door is all about showcasing the very best from Marlborough, taking visitors through the story behind the brand and where the wines comes from within the vineyard set in the region.
“We have a very loyal customer base in many markets around the world in particular we have a large following in Australia and we also have a large proportions of Australians visiting New Zealand.
“We needed to ensure we had a place followers could come and try new things, look at wines we are experimenting with, and taste our premium range they may not be able to find in a store in Australia. But we also wanted people to get close to our rich story.”
